Church Planting and Revitalisation
"The vigorous, continual planting of new congregations is the single most crucial strategy for the numerical growth of the Body of Christ in any city, and the continual corporate renewal and revival of the existing churches in a city."
Tim Keller, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York
THE TITUS NETWORK
Sussex is a significant county not just in its population of 1.7 million people, but its potential influence as so many of its residents commute to London, or to its own cities of Chichester, Brighton, Eastbourne and Hastings. At the SGP, we are committed to the prayerful proclamation of the gospel as the means by which God brings lost men, women and children to saving faith in Christ. We need gospel ministers to plant and revitalise churches in a huge diversity of areas if we are to reach the residents of Sussex with this great news. We need those who can reach cities and those who can reach towns and villages; those who love urban life and those who love rural life; those who can engage students and millenials, and those who can engage the middle-aged and elderly; those who might begin a work within the LGBT community and those who might begin one within the farming community.
That’s why we have set up a network called The Titus Network, dedicated to supporting, equipping and recruiting people who share our passion for local Churches that will proclaim the gospel in every community in Sussex. Please visit the Titus Network website to find out more.
Grace Church is one example of a new church in Sussex planted with the help and support of the SGP. It has now established a congregation in Bolnore Village, a large new housing development on the outskirts of Haywards Heath.
